 It was the greatest thing in the world getting fat. Every meal out was an event. We’d go to Italy and have pasta, truffles and dessert and then plan the next incredible meal. It was a happy-go-lucky time. I never had so much fun. It was insane. I’m disgusted with myself! I let myself down and, worse than that, I let other people down. People were looking up to me for losing all that weight and then I went and got all chub on them. When we get fat, we fool ourselves with every kind of lie imaginable. By 2008, my weight started creeping up and I said, ‘Oh, I still look good at 150 [pounds]. I still look good at 155. I still look okay at 165. Some of my clothes still fit at 175. And nobody was saying ‘You’re fat.’ I was like a bank robber who was getting away with it.

 Elizabeth Taylor and I were laughing at lunch the other day. We realized there’ve been a few famous women who’ve been targeted for their weight — and she and I are two of them. We’ve been stalked for decades for being fat. Elizabeth Taylor helped me put things in perspective. She taught me to enjoy the craziness — and, more important, to laugh at it.

 My self-esteem was basically zero, so it was hard to get the eating under control. It made me completely self-conscious. I stopped going out, especially to restaurants… I succumbed to the meanness and attacks and lost my way in the process. I’m telling you, it was hell.

 I’m not a surgery girl, I haven’t had plastic surgery. I don’t wanna have it but it’s hard when you see your peers and things and they have. I go back and forth and think, ‘Who’s gonna play grandmothers in movies?’

 You gotta be 100 to be a grandmother in a movie! So maybe it just gives our group [actresses without surgery] more longevity to be filming.
